Diamine Old English Grey Fountain Pen ink tested in a Paperblanks journal with off-white paper - and in an EF Lamy Safari fountain pen.
I have always preferred the English spelling of "grey" to "gray."
This ink has some shading and decent flow.
My first time trying a grey ink - I have a Triplus Fineliner marker that I like to draw with that's similar in color. I am trying to figure out if a grey ink is a lighter version of black but with the saturation level of this ink, I'd say no.
For now, I'm keeping this one. It makes me want to draw.....
